Attractions Vancouver recreationLOCAL ATTRACTIONS

On the doorstep of cosmopolitan Vancouver.....

Adjacent to Lynn Canyon House is scenic Lynn Canyon Park and Suspension Bridge with rushing waterfalls. This is a stunning area where you can experience wilderness at our doorstep. Yet we're only 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver.

We are ideally situated only minutes by car from Stanley Park, Grouse Mountain, the beaches, spectacular gardens, golf, tennis, hiking, parks, restaurants. It's not just the West Coast location and gorgeous setting where mountains meet the sea. It's also the sheer range of enjoyment for body, mind and soul. You can ski, fish for salmon in Horseshoe Bay, golf and go sailing, here all on the same day - and then catch an opera or Broadway musical by night. Most summer evenings you will see Vancouverites jogging, strolling, rollerblading or bicycling the many miles of seaside walks along the beaches savouring our stunning sunsets.

Your hosts, Josephine and Joe, will guide you to see our beautiful, vibrant and spectacular city of Vancouver.

Come and be our guests soon!
